35 Days of Favorites: Finishing Projects.

This post is part of a series called “35 Days of Favorites”, in honor of my 35th birthday. You can read more about the details here

I am much, much better at starting projects than finishing them.

For example. Remember this?

I started that project last summer, and I only needed to do a few small things to finish it up – buy picture frames, have photos printed, sew some cushion covers, find a plant pot, but…it took me an entire year to get around to it!


That kind of thing happens often around here. There’s probably some deep, mind-blowing, psychological reason for why I avoid following through on the projects I start, but I have no clue what it is.

In the meantime, whenever I do finish something, IT FEELS AMAZING!!

I love it. And then I get super-motivated to…start a whole bunch more projects. Which I don’t finish. Oh, dear.

Anyway, I finally finished last summer’s project, and it makes me really, really happy. It feels good to be done.


Do you have any projects you need to finish? What shall we accomplish today?!:)

  1. Let’s see . . . where shall I begin? The most pressing one is to finish the 4 flowergirl dresses I am sewing. Must be done by July 21. Then I have a half-started master vanity, spindles for the staircase that are in the painting process, the risers for the stairs that need painting so I can install the already-stained treads that are waiting for me, a school room that needs to be painted and have the cabinetry installed so we can actually do school, a front porch that has most of the decking installed but not all . . . my list is never-ending. That doesn’t include the crocheting that has been started or the cross-stitching or the other sewing I love to do (aprons, aprons and more aprons). Let’s just say I shall never, ever get bored! 😉

    • Oh, Chantelle, one of the main differences between your to-do list and mine is that I delegate half of mine to Ben because he’s better with tools, and you just do all of yours yourself! You really won’t ever get bored, being Superwoman, and all!:)

  2. Very beautiful entrance :). I look forward to seeing it in person :P. Question: where did you get your long-ish seat cushion? Did you sew the cover? Looks very welcoming!

  3. Thanks, Leah. My entrance is also very eager to meet you in person. I made the seat cushion. I bought foam at a fabric store and covered it. It wasn’t the most fun thing I’ve ever done, but it wasn’t too bad. I was expecting it to be harder then what it actually was.
